Oregon Friendly Driver

The Oregon Friendly Driver program is a 90-minute interactive class to educate all drivers on the best and safest ways to share the road with people walking or riding a bike.  These classes are taught by Commute Options’ Kate Armstrong and are organized in part with The Street Trust and the Lane Council of Governments. This class is based on the Bicycle Friendly Driver program developed by FC Bikes in collaboration with Bike Fort Collins.

The Oregon Friendly Driver class addresses:

  • Why sharing the road is the safest alternative for both motorists and bicyclists
  • What’s legal and what’s not legal for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians
  • Common crashes and how to avoid them
  • Why bicyclists “take the lane” and what motorists should do in response
  • How to navigate bicycle and pedestrian related infrastructure such as: sharrows, bike boxes, green lanes, and rapid flashing beacons.

Upon successful completion of the class, participants will receive an Oregon Friendly Driver certificate and window cling.
